Prepare your vehicle for upcoming road trips

Prepare your vehicle for upcoming road trips

E As we enter into the warmer weather, summer is rapidly approaching, vacation destinations are top of mind and planning is in motion. A lot more people will be driving this year, as opposed to flying to their chosen location.

Why having your differential service can help prolong your vehicles life.

Why having your differential service can help prolong your vehicles life.

Vehicle manufacturers spend a lot of money and time on ensuring their vehicles that are properly maintained will last for many thousands of miles, these manufacturers hire top level engineers that understand vehicle fluids and how long these fluids will last under different conditions.  One of several fluids that are used in today's trucks and  sport utility vehicles is differential gear oil. Every manufacturer has a recommended service interval for each differential gear oil for normal driving and severe driving. Anyone that tows any type of trailer(boat, travel trailer, landscaping trailer, etc.) or that uses their vehicle for snow plowing will need to follow the severe service  interval.  These vehicles that tow and plow, or even used off-road, work the vehicle’s differential hard and create a lot of heat which lessens the life of the differential gear oil ... read more

Over Filling Your Gas Tank

Over Filling Your Gas Tank

Over Filling Your Gas TankYour vehicle is an essential part of your lifestyle. Making sure that you have fuel in your vehicle is not such a difficult subject to address. You know that you need gas to run your car, oil to lubricate your engine, and routinemaintenance to ensure that it performs at it’s best and will get you from point A to point B.   What you might not be aware of is that something that seems as innocent as over filling your fuel tank can actually cause more harm than good. It’s tempting whenyou are at the pump to round the meter to the next round dollar amount, particularly if you are paying with cash. Gas station attendants will sometimes try to do the same, avoiding having to give coins as change. Once the sensor clicks, they might go for just .40 more to make ... read more

What is that chirping coming from under my cars hood

What is that chirping coming from under my cars hood

Now that the cold weather is upon us you may notice that there is a chirping sound coming from your car's engine. This is probably not Tweety Bird flying around under your hood! It’s most likely your serpentine belt. read more...   The serpentine belt on most vehicles is a single belt that is used for driving multiple devices on your engine such as the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and air conditioning compressor and that is why is essential that the serpentine belt, belt tensioner and pulleys are in proper working order. When the rubber from the belt gets cold and the elements have caused some negative effects on it, it’s a sign that it’s probably time to replace it. Along with the serpentine belt, the belt tension ... read more

Winter Wiper Blades

Winter Wiper Blades

It’s wiper blade season. Time to get prepared for the inclimate weather that is approaching. With the cold weather upon us we tend to try to rush getting into our vehicles and get out of the cold.  When you fail to let the vehicle warm up properly you can experience the wiper blades sticking to the windshield. Some will use the wipers to remove the dirt or even use the snow from the ground to clean the windshield for better visibility. This can cause damage to the wipers, make them wear out prematurely or even damage the arms and the motor. It’s recommended to prepare with a set of winter wiper blades. Winter Blades are intended to do a heavier removal of ice and snow and have a smooth surface to eliminate the accumulation of  snow and ice and get better contact with the glass.  Snow and icy weather limits visibility, if your wipers aren’t doing their intended job, it can build up and further diminish your sight, making driving even more difficult an ... read more

Safety Inspections for your vehicle

Safety Inspections for your vehicle

  WHO'S LOOKING OUT FOR  YOUR SAFETY WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR VEHICLE? So you were most likely taught to look both ways before you cross the road. Tie your shoes so you don’t trip. Your parents instilled in you the importance of safety, and warned you of the dangers that might fall upon you if you didn’t take precautions. VEHICLE SAFETY So here we are in 2020 relearning to wash our hands, cover our mouths and keep our distance. These are all steps to keep ourselves safe and they all seem a little deja vu-ish if you ask most people (mama told you so.) In New Jersey the state used to require safety regulations to enforce Mama’s fine and early teachings. They were imperative for you to be able to pass NJ state inspections.   If your vehicle fell short of the requirements they slapped a big red rejection sticker in your windshield..  Ever present are long lines as the ... read more
